Some sad news & a little happy!

Hello folks! First for some sad news :-( At the beginning of January I started my IVF treatment & yesterday we found out that the pregnancy test was negative. We are both very sad & gutted. We are however lucky & happy we still very much have each other & are looking to the future.
Now on to happy news! My friend Debbie very kindly sent me this blog award (a while ago I'm afraid-slap my wrists bad blogger!!) Thank you Debbie
 I now have to say eight things about myself and pass the award onto four others
When I was little I always wanted to go to ballet or tap lessons & promised myself that if the IVF didn't work (which it hasn't) I would look into doing adult ballet. Tonight I checked out adult ballet in York & found lessons on a Monday night which I am going to give a whirl!!I was scared of needles before doing the IVF & managed to do all but 2 of my injections myself...& believe me there were many to do!!!!When me & my younger sister &…

Ellephantastic Challenge blog mid month surprise!!

Hello! Today it is the  Ellephantastic Challenges mid month surprise post!!
Pop over for some extra inspiration from the team who have all used Ellephantastic digis & also grab yourself a surprise...what?.....go see!!!!!
Here is my project for mid month using our theme of  'New Beginnings'  & my digi  Elle & Andi - Bride & Groom

I am sponsoring Teddy Stampers

Morning bloggers! Today I am sponsoring  Teddy Stampers
They very kindly asked me to GD so I said YES!! They have chosen to use  Roger Laying & Rogers big heart

I decided to use Roger's big heart. I enlarged him to 17cm high so he was big enough to hold one of  Die cut Dreams scalloped hearts (which are roughly 9cm high)...worked well!! I coloured him with promarkers & did a second layed for his head & hands so he is slightly 3D too. Because he is so big I have left him as he is & stood him up using the little plate stand type things also from Die cut Dreams. 

Happy Friday! xxx
